Peachtree Middle Student Recognized for Ocean Artwork

Carol Zhou received a behind-the-scenes tour of the Georgia Aquarium as part of her award.

Carol Zhou, now a sixth-grade student at Peachtree Charter Middle Schoool, received national recognition for a Coastal America Art Contest, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Her artwork, produced when she was a fifth grader at Dunwoody Elementary School, is a colorful display of underwater life and is reminiscent of a coral reef.

The national recognition earned her second place, the report says. She was one  a select few picked. Sixteen students from kindergarten to college were recognized for their artwork - themes to reflect "ocean literacy."

Zhou was unable to attend a reception in Washington, D.C. She did, however, receive a bacjstage tour of the world-famous Georgia Aquarium.

Her former art teacher, Laura Fleury-Bell, was aslo able to attend with her student.
